Returning to the show after last year’s success is the Mirf’Fest Music Stage supported by West Yorkshire radio station The Pulse.
It’s a free live music event within the show delivering a real mixture of acoustic, traditional, soloists and live bands all playing covers and music from across the generations throughout the day.
The original Mirf’ Fest organisers – and now members of Mirfield Show – said “Our local area has an amazing mixture of musicians from soloists to live bands and we wanted to create an event that will run alongside the Mirfield Show, and in time could grow into a whole festival itself.”
Eight amazing acts will be performing live from 10am including; Peculiar Blue Fie Fie Fie, The Old Fools, Phoenix, Jasmine Wilkinson, Alex Carlos, Matt Burnside with the headline act Eternal Teenage Syndrome taking to the stage at 13.00 hrs. All performances are voluntary as Mirfield Show is a not-for-profit volunteer event.
